Auburn University is planning one final roll of the historic Toomer's Corners Oaks this spring before the trees are removed.
That's a damn shame about those trees. Tragic chain of events.
Started at the bottom, now we here.....better get used to it.
My understanding is that there are several plans on the table but no decision has been made. The main problem with replanting is that those particular oaks are not indigenous to southeast AL, so replanting new trees might be an issue with root system development. Transplanting fully grown live oaks there would be difficult, and if they plant baby saplings it would be several generations before they would available for rolling again.
As you said, tragic chain of events.
just curious but shouldnt an AgFarm be able to figure this one out ?
You could always just put a Cam statue there

You should prepare yourself to live with the consequences of your decisions, whatever they may be.
I'm telling y'all. Replica tree statues. That's the perfect idea
That's not a terrible idea. And we'll promise not to poison the statues.
Super easy to clean, too.
Wouldn't you guys be pissed if some asshole went around poisoning cool old trees on UA's campus?
Happy days are here again!!!!
Shoot, I got pissed when an LSU fan put a purple poncho on Saban's statue.
To be fair, the coolest old tree on campus was struck by lightning and I'm pretty sure it's dead. But that's why it's cool. It's all gnarly and stuff.
